Iceland is trendy these days. We did a roadtrip around the island and had an amazing experience. We created a lot of memories amongst the family and fortunately we took some photos during the journey so we can share parts of them. Most photos are from the Westfjords and then the southern part of the country.
The Iceland photos

There is a local saying in Iceland: “What do you do if you get lost in the forest? You stand up”

Geysir about to blow!
Silfra (Silvery) is a underwater canyon in Lake Thingvellir. The water is +2°c all year around and is totally free from any life, meaning no fish or green life. This results in 100 m visibility which is the most underwater visibility in the world. We did some scuba diving guided tour which was amazing.
Þingvallavatn or Lake Thingvellir has very clear water and is full of trout
When hiking in Iceland you have to stop frequently to enjoy the view.

When you live far from a grocery store, it’s good to have a small boat to go fishing.

Sometimes it was just overwhelming.
River of fresh water
One typical Icelandic mountain
Lake Frostastaðavatn close to Landmannalaugar. I just love the island in the middle of the lake and how it fits nicely into the mirror image of the background.

Another creek found on a hiking trip
Thermal pools can be found all around
Killer sheep one the roads
Just another road to travel

Fresh water from ground created some new colors to enjoy.
We didn’t stay at the Viking hotel but it sure looked inviting and with good atmosphere.
